Destination Path too long


So I am trying to download "Google's Android Developer Tools (ADT) Bundle". Once I download it, I unzip/extract it. All is fine until the very end of that process. Every time I try it I get an error that pops up, "Destination path too long" for the "com.android.ide.eclipse.hierarchyviewer.finder".

I have restarted my computer, downloaded, and deleted all files several times and I still get this error. Any help please?? I am at the point when I am starting to create the blog reader.

Thank you!!!!

So I believe I figured it out. This here documents the issue. Treehouse, definitely check it out so other people don't spend as much time as I did on this. https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=72539

My workaround was just not using the Windows default zip program. As lame as it sounds, using it won't unzip the whole package correctly. For reference my machine is Windows 8.1.

Hope this helps!
